Mauricio Pochettino, manager of Spurs looks on prior to the Pre-Season Friendly match beween Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus at Wembley Stadium on August 5, 2017 in London, England.

Pundit Mark Lawrenson has told BBC Sport that he thinks Tottenham will target up to three more new signings - and believes they will defeat Burnley 2-0 this afternoon.

Whilst Spurs kicked off their league campaign with a 2-0 win at Newcastle United, they suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat at home to Chelsea last weekend, with Tottenham again suffering a loss at Wembley Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino's men need to adjust to life at Wembley given that they will be playing all their home games there this season, and two new arrivals made their way to Tottenham's temporary home this week.

Spurs boss Pochettino finally landed his first signings of the summer by bringing in Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga and Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez, with the latter potentially in contention to feature against Burnley this afternoon.

The Clarets also opened their season with an away win by stunning Chelsea with a 3-2 victory, but then lost at home as they were beaten 1-0 by West Bromwich Albion at Turf Moor last weekend.

Sean Dyche's men also made a huge signing this week, as striker Chris Wood joined the club from Leeds United in a club-record deal on Monday, having smashed 30 goals in all competitions last season.

Wood could feature against Tottenham today, but pundit Mark Lawrenson has told BBC Sport that he thinks Burnley will lose 2-0 to Spurs this afternoon, backing Spurs to get a Wembley win under their belt.

Lawrenson added that he still thinks Tottenham will struggle to achieve Champions League qualification due to playing at Wembley, and feels that Pochettino will be looking to bring in up to three more new signings before the transfer deadline.

"In fairness to Tottenham, they played OK last weekend. Chelsea were just better than them. It is important for Tottenham to start getting wins under their belt at Wembley and to start to dispel the myth of it being a hoodoo," said Lawrenson. "I said in week one that they would struggle to finish in the top four because of the Wembley situation and I am not going to change my mind. They will be in the mix for the top six though. They are not a bad team because they lost at home to Chelsea. They have made some signing this week - the Colombian defender Davinson Sanchez from Ajax and goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga from Southampton. I would think they will be looking to get two or three more in."

"But it is a trip to Wembley for Burnley and while they lost last weekend to West Brom they put in a really good performance to beat Chelsea on the opening day. I can't see them winning this though," he added.
